In this week’s installment of “On Stage,” we turn to the 1920s-inspired “Harlem Nights” in Chicago, which features a speakeasy, a soiree, a murder mystery and tap dancing — period dress required.

The tap dancing comes courtesy of the Chicago dance group M.A.D.D. Rhythms. (The acronym stands for “making a difference dancing.”) The founder and director of the group, Bril Barrett, joined Here & Nows Robin Young to discuss the group.
